Plum & White

Hi there my crafting buddies, hope this finds you all safe and well? Thank you for visiting me today I do appreciate it, I do try and get round to visiting all your blogs too and commenting on your wonderful creations, there is so much inspiration out there it is good to see.

Now todays post was not supposed to be as large as it is, I usually start from the base and work up so everything is cut to fit! This time I started with the top lol! I wont make that mistake again.

I recently bought the Sue Wilson Embroidered Striplet so was dying to make a card with it, I had a lot to live up to with our Mrs Duck and John Next Door lol! I don't think I have come anywhere near their creations but this die does make a statement all of its own.

I die cut the middle of a piece of White card, as I liked it that size I started to mat & layer up so of course several layers later you start to realise this is no longer a small card lol! Of course there is nothing you can do about it and it is nice to have a larger card in stock for a special occasion. My only disappointment was the PVA Pearls around the edge, it wasn't until I had finished that I saw how uneven they were and once again there is nothing you can do, so I do apologize! I have left any sentiment/tag off until it is needed.

On the inside I have just lined it with more of the Plum card and a White Oval ready for any verse/sentiment.
